Very good extension, works on my 1.6x install, with a couple of files copied here and there as mentioned in the below comment it worked great!
Well done guys and thanks for making this free!

Works well on 1.6!
Works well on 1.6 but you have to use Version: 1.0.3! The documentation sucks, its for the old version. The new one is in google search for 'featured category magento'. Its a pdf. You also can install with URL key instead of using FTP to upload. Just add the prefix found here: http://ommune.com/connect-error-couldnt-resolve-host-magento-community/
To choose featured category/sub-category look in General tab for that category.
After I figured all this out it worked great. Hope I saved somebody else from all the extra time I spent.

You can use with category thumbnail image too
It works on my CE 18.104.22.168.
And if you'd like to show the category thumbnail image instead of category image, you just change the 35. row in app/design/frontend/default/default/template/display.phtml:
<img src="<?php echo Mage::getBaseUrl('media').'catalog/category/'.$FeaturedGroup['Category']->getThumbnail(); ?>"
Thank you sfcadmin!

Does what it says, very good
Had some issues with 1 category being aligned right for some reason but changed this in the CSS. There is plenty of scope for someone with good CSS skills.

Great extension. Installed on 22.214.171.124 and it worked nicely. My gripe with it is in the frontend though... the CSS needs to be tweaked. Heights should be defined on the individual boxes, because if you have categories of differing heights the DIVs do not align properly (initially) upon loading. Other than that, great stuff!

Can seem to get this showing on the CMS home page. Any Suggestions? Or instructs to implement this?

Awesome! installed in a few minutes on 1.6, saved me hours of copying and pasting links to the main page. This is a must have for any store.

Installation was successful and the extension is enabled, however the checkbox is not displayed in the manage categories window?
